What is Mindfulness?
Written by: RJ Lisander
So, while technically not a blog post on yoga, some of the concepts of mindfulness are not too different from some of the concepts of yoga. I suppose the parallels of yoga and mindfulness have always intertwined a bit for me, especially the concepts of sitting in the moment and allowing the body, mind and breath to settle. But, it wasn’t until I started working with Kate Thieda, MS, LPCA, NCC, on a workshop, Girls on the Run: Stress Management, Mindfulness and Yoga, that we are co-presenting in March and April for Empower Personalized Fitness, that I really started to observe the connection that I was making to mindfulness in my personal and teaching practices.
